Camera Enclosures and Covers
Protect your surveillance investment with camera protection coversYou use surveillance cameras to protect your property, so you need to protect your security investment with surveillance camera covers in order to keep everything operating at its best.
There are as many types of camera enclosures and covers as there are security and surveillance cameras. It is best to know what your basic needs are before you start shopping. Questions to answer before you begin looking for custom camera enclosures include:
1. What type of camera needs a cover or enclosure -- inside equipment, outside equipment or CCTV equipment? The diameter of the camera lens plays a role, too.
2. Are looks important, or is quality more important? Sometimes it is both, but for outdoor camera covers, durability is critical.
3. How much time and expense are you willing to put in? Do you want to do it yourself (DIY) or hire a professional installer?
Keep it protected with a security camera enclosure
Use special consideration for an outdoor camera enclosureOutdoor surveillance cameras require different protection measures than indoor security cameras in regard to covers. Natural forces are at play on the outside, so consider heavy-duty camera covers. If you are in a cold climate at any time of the year, an outdoor camera enclosure with a heater and blower would be a solid investment.
Protect equipment from the elements with specialty security camera coversIndoor and outdoor cameras can benefit from camera covers by having the lenses protected from any natural elements. Some security cam covers are purposely chosen to blend in with the scenery, or at least to not attract attention to their location.
- Remember to get a cleaning kit if you purchase surveillance camera enclosures, especially for outdoor cameras. If the lens has to see through a cover, you will want to make sure that nothing distorts the view.
